Coral spawning in aquaria is rare and it’s hard enough to catch. For a recent visit to their coral greenhouses, luck was on ORA’s favor as they happened to be in the right place at the right time to catch a nice mass spawning of their Blue Voodoo Acropora.
This is not the first time that ORA has witnessed a coral spawning in their coral gardens, but this time is very different. Whereas previously it seemed like a big diversity of their corals were dribbling egg and sperm into the water over a period of month, this time it was one coral strain going off at the same time in different tanks but the same system.
To experience a mass spawning the Blue Voodoo Acro obviously has to be in prime health in order to have the necessary resources left over to produce gametes in the first place. Healthy corals come in a range of colors but when the corals are kept in optimal conditions for a period of time, and they spawn, you can be darned sure they are in the peak of health.
